    best DIY "gotta have" for a WDW trip? Something you made yourself to get around inconvenience or high costs; such as freezing juice boxes/pouches to keep your sandwiches cold in their cooler... Eat your heart out, MacGyver.

    Mine is the autograph books that I made for my kids. I got tired of spending outrageous prices in the parks just to have something Disney-themed, and hit on the idea of buying a few sheets of heavy weight paper, a couple sheets of sturdy cardstock, some stickers and glittery bits in Disney themes--all for under 15 dollars at my local craft shop. Then off to Staples office supply, where they happily measured, cut and spiral-bound my miniature books into autograph size. Kiddos decorated 'em with the stickers to make a personalized book that nobody else will have, and each page is big enough for a costumed CM to grab and hold with those cumbersome mitts in order to sign. There's even enough room for a character photo on the facing pages. I'm turrible proud of 'em...and I spent less than I would have on the standard issue ones at the parks!
    Love isn't about finding someone you can live with.

    Yes ma'am, I surely do! Just one, mind you, but it's a good shot of the very lavishly-decorated covers that my kids created. The word "moderation" doesn't come into play here, LOL!
    The 3-D character stickers are shaped like bottlecaps. Madison's is all Tinkerbell'd up, and Nicholas opted for the classic Mickey & Pals theme. The title on Nick's says "Disney Memories" and Maddie's says "Wishes Do Come True", and she trimmed it with jewels, just to make it extra sparkly!
